Top Trump administration officials will hold a rare briefing on
Wednesday at the White House for the entire U.S. Senate on the situation
in North Korea.
All 100 senators have been asked to the White House for the briefing
by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis,
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and General Joseph Dunford,
chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said White House spokesman Sean
Spicer on Monday.
While administration officials routinely travel to Capitol Hill to
address members of Congress on foreign policy matters, it is unusual for
the entire Senate to go to the White House, and for all four of those
officials to be involved.
Wednesday’s briefing was originally scheduled for a secure
room at the Capitol, but President Donald Trump suggested a shift to the
White House, congressional aides said.
